This Week’s GoComics Staff Pick: The Fusco Brothers
This pick comes from our Assistant Managing Editor, Clint Hooker: There are many reasons I count The Fusco Brothers as one of my favorite comics, not the least of which is that creator J.C. Duffy submits his work consistently ahead of deadlines. I also like the strips’ appearance, which is generally a horizontal single panel for dailies. In a world of shrinking comics pages, The Fusco Brothers holds up well. And Duffy’s writing strength is in producing gags that don’t feel like gags, even in limited space. His jokes develop quickly without feeling hurried, and are concluded with masterful payoffs. But beyond the aesthetics and deadlines, Duffy has endowed his titular characters with a humor that is right up my alley. Many of the gags are things we would like to say, but rarely have the courage (or is it the good sense?) to utter to another human being. Whether they’re pickup lines at happy hour, a therapy session or even in front of a judge, The Fusco Brothers holds nothing back.

This Week’s GoComics Staff Pick: Luann
This pick comes from our International Sales Administrator, Kelly Kranz: Luann is one of my favorite comic strips and always makes me laugh. I think that everyone can relate to Luann thinking back to their own adolescence years growing up and get a good laugh. The relationship between Luann and Tiffany is always entertaining. I think we’ve all known a Tiffany in our own lives! I think it’s a great strip for readers of all ages, young and old! Enjoy.
New Comic Monday! Today we welcome Skippy by Percy Crosby, a comic from the 1920s!
More about Skippy:
GoComics is happy to introduce the Skippy comic, created by Percy Crosby, to another generation of pop art lovers. Skippy debuted as a daily newspaper strip in 1925 and as a Sunday the following year. and soon became a sensation, published in 28 countries and 14 languages. Crosby continued writing and drawing the feature until 1945. In spirit, it is similar to strips that followed its, such as Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes.
Because of its depiction of current times in the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s, there may be cultural differences displayed that differ from today’s style and content of comics. We’ll show you a time with different diction and slang, when the world was a bigger place and not simply a click away from someone across the ocean. This includes The Great Depression and when the country was at war. Enjoy this flashback to the time of The Greatest Generation with one of its greatest creative treasures.
